    First you have to get a key pass from Vaux £25
    A key fob about £10
    Key fitted with blank Transponder £10 on ebay
    Get a local key cutter to cut the key i paid £4

    Now the hard part try and find somebody with tec2 i will ask on a vec B forum for you but what part of Scotland are you from ?
    My mate does them local to me for £10 to all but im in South Wales so he is out of the question he is doing my vec C key fob tommorow

    On the Vec-B, I have been advised that you can re-program a used transponder chip. Only porblem is there are loads of different types of them so "apparently" you need to make sure you get the right one, e.g. the MHz rating, etc.

    Im pretty certain someone with an op-com type tool can sort it for you.

    I tried to do mine sometime ago but I had the wrong chip.....if you let me know what transponder chip he has in his current key, I will see if the one I have match's, if it does, ill post it you and you can try to get it re-prog'd.

    It may just be a case of swapping out the blade from one to the other, etc.

    Problem is, these things always sound more straight forward than they are!

    Let me know dude!


    Bye bye Vec B

    Pull the blade away from the main fob (use a small screwdriver and stick in the little tab). When you have the blade on its own, you will see a tiny piece of plastic wedged in one side of the blade casing.....with white writing. Its about 1cm x 0.5cm.

    HTH. Let me know how you get on.
